Why Veneered Wood?
Veneered Wood Tiles & Panels are an environmental friendly building product with endless possibilities. The wood is used efficiently in the production of veneer, as modern production methods ensure that around 800-1000 m2 of veneer can be produced from 1 m3 of wood. With the demountable clips, the panels can be easily installed and be removed to have access to the plenum.
The Veneered Wood Tiles and Panels are suitable for all building sectors: Corporate, Transport (airports, metro-, bus -, train stations), Retail, Leisure, Public spaces, Hospitality, Healthcare, Education or Residential.
Acoustical comfort in an office space, school or public building contributes to our well-being as good acoustic comfort can positively affect health, communication, safety, productivity and learning.
Playing with the panel width and gap will, can provide the necessary acoustic performance for different atmospheres. Optionally, the panels can also be perforated.
Recently, Hunter Douglas developed a new perforation pattern which has extremely good acoustics. This mini micro perforation pattern consists of 0.5mm diameter holes, which from a distance is not visible to the naked eye. This allows the designer to use a high acoustic panel, on a seemingly non-perforated panel.
Reaction to fire
By impregnating wood, a reaction to fire classification (EN13501-1) of B-s1,d0 can be achieved. In some cases higher classifications can also be achieved.
High humidity solutions
Due to a special treatment to the wooden panels, some wood species are perfectly suitable for humid areas, such as swimming pools.
The panels can be easily fixed onto a T-24mm suspended profile, by the use of metal turning clips. The clips are available to create a 0/5/10/15/20/25mm joint between the panels.
The panels can be fixed to a wall with metal clips, which are directly fixed onto a wooden batten or Omega substructure.
Hunter Douglas contributes to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting health and wellbeing of their occupants is arguably the most important function of buildings. Buildings are not constructed just to be energy efficient. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.
Environmentally sound materials are key to sustainable buildings. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We’ve optimized our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.
Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effectively managing the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.
Keen on Green is an important company-wide initiative to reduce energy consumption, water usage and our overall carbon-footprint. We embrace the ISO 14001 framework to actively manage our Keen on Green objectives. Hunter Douglas and its employees actively support the communities in which we live and work, as well as those on a more global scale. Business is people. We pride ourselves on our worldwide network of experienced, intelligent, passionate and creative people that have consciously chosen Hunter Douglas as their employer.
